Monitoring for water leaks goes high tech! The FIBARO Apple HomeKit enabled Flood Sensor is a wireless, battery-operated water and temperature sensor that detects and alerts you of water leaks as well as changes in temperature. You can also use Siri voice control to check the status of the device or even ask what the temperature is in the sensor's location. The sensor uses Apple HomeKit technology, which provides an easy, secure way to control HomeKit-enabled accessories using Siri on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.The flood sensor's small size gives you the flexibility to place it in important places that need monitoring, such as near hot water tanks, under sinks, and by washing machines. Additionally, the unique telescoping feet ensure the water sensor is always making contact with the surface it's placed on. And if your pet decides it is a toy, the built-in tamper alert notifies you if it has moved it from its ideal location.
Your best friend during water leakage incident
Easy to use
You can configure FIBARO Water Leak Detector from the FIBARO app or the Home app directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in a few simple steps.
The FIBARO Flood Sensor is more than just a leak detector. Its design combines several useful features that ensure safety and comfort of use.
The system will immediately inform you of detected leaks or tampering attempts by sending a notification to your smartphone.
Use one of the Apple HomeKit hubs, such as Hompod, Apple TV or iPad to remotely access your HomeKit accessories and control your home directly from your iPhone.
The built-in alarm siren will help you react quickly in the event of leakage or tampering with the unit.
You can check the status of your water leak detector and the temperature by simply asking Siri. If your home is equipped with a HomeKit hub, such as Apple TV or HomePod, you can do it from anywhere in the world. Is not it great?

Unlike EVERY OTHER HomeKit accessory I have ever owned, the Fibaro Flood Sensor does NOT have the HomeKit ID number printed on it anywhere (just a bit of paper that comes in the shipping carton.
If you ask support, they’ll inform you that it is the consumers fault for not saving a scrap of paper for this digital product, and that they can not assist in any way.
I went from a Flood Sensor that (presumably) worked for a few months, to one that kept triggering for seemingly no reason, to one that no longer communicates with HomeKit and continues to alarm for no reason. Their support is based in Poland—not shipping a $70 accessory all the way there, only to still not be able to rejoin HomeKit.
A uniquely unfortunate implementation of HomeKit support, as every other company has thought-through their HomeKit support a bit more practically.
The Fibaro water leak detector is not as good as the three referenced above, but it has some good qualities. The Fibaro has 3 golden points on the bottom of the detector. If these leads come in contact with water, then the alarm in the Fibaro leak detector will go off and you will receive a push notification from Homekit. If water is under this leak detector, but does not touch any of these 3 golden points, then the alarm will not go off. Also, if the leak is falling on the Fibaro, and water rolls off the device, the water might roll off in such a way to not touch those 3 golden leads. The great thing about the Fibaro is that the alarm goes off almost instantly when a leak is actually detected. While the other leak detectors, referenced above, take between 5- 20 seconds to alert the user. The Homekit notification also comes in pretty quick as well, but that is going to depend on if you have a great Bluetooth connection from an Apple TV or an iPad in hub mode. Because the Fibaro uses Bluetooth instead of Wi-Fi, for a very large space, you might need more than one Apple TV or iPad, in hub mode, to relay that Bluetooth signal to your phone, or whatever IOS device you carry with you. In a small apartment, this may not be an issue. For a structure that’s between 3000 - 5000 square feet, or more, you will need multiple Apple TV’s/iPads to tunnel that Bluetooth signal. Also, for Homekit, if the Homekit trigger fails, because of a failure connect to Bluetooth, then there is a about a 10 second delay before Homekit retries the notification. Therefore, if there is a leak, there may be a delay until you are notified with this product.
For testing, I placed a the Fibaro in the sink that had a small buildup of water in it. As soon as I placed the Fibaro in the sink, the alarm went off, and I received an Apple Homekit notification. Using the Elgato Eve app, an automation was setup to turn on a lamp if a leak was detected. This worked great. When the Homekit notification came in, the light also came on. When I took the Fibaro out of the sink, the alarm stopped, even though the bottom of it was completely wet. This means that these golden points must actually be surrounded by water and not just damp. There was another automation setup to turn the lamp off when the leak was stopped. However, that test failed. I’m not sure if the problem is in Homekit or Fibaro, but there was no notification sent when the leak stop, so the light stayed on. In contrast, if the Honeywell, and Dlink, leak detectors are even slightly damp, the alarm will go off and it will keep going off, until the part of the lead is completely dry. Therefore, if water is leaking down an incline, then there is a possibility that the Fibaro leak detector will not go off. Water actually has to pool up under the Fibaro device for a leak to be detected.
Next, the Fibaro has a temperature sensor in the device. The way to set a safe temperature range is through Homekit Automation. You can do that either through the Apple Home app automation tab, or the Elgato Eve rules engine. Through those interfaces, you should be able to say, between 49 – 89 degrees, everything is considered fine, but anything outside of that range is bad, and the user should be alerted. However, I couldn’t get that to work either. Even though the automation was setup, it just didn’t work. The Honeywell leak detector has this feature and it works great. Further, the Honeywell also has a humidity detector in it as well. Therefore, in the Honeywell, I can say that the safe humidity range is 20 – 70 %, and alert me if it goes outside of that range. Instead, the Fibaro has an accelerometer, that detects when the device is moved, and sends an alert through the Fibaro app. For a leak detector device, I would argue that a humidity sensor would have been more useful that an accelerometer for tamper detection.
Also, the Fibaro has only 3 ways of alerting the user any issues: the alarm on the device, push notifications, and Homekit automation. The Honeywell and Dlink will alert you through and alarm, push notification, and email. Further, the Dlink can be integrated with IFTTT, so you can integrate it with other services. Therefore, you can probably find a way for have the Dlink alert you through text messaging if you want it to. For my use, email is the big thing that’s missing from the Fibaro product. Push notification is fine, but overseas, some IOS push notifications do not work. Also, if no one is home to hear the alarm, then it doesn’t matter if it goes off. With email, the possibility that the user will be notified is much higher than with any other notification that the Fibaro currently has. Moreover, the Honeywell allows the user the input the email address of any other person that should be notified by email into the app. Therefore, if you are going out of town and want a few of your neighbors to know if there is a leak in your house, you can easily input their email addresses in the app. There is no such equivalent in in the Fibaro app. Through Apple Homekit, you’d have to invite your neighbors to have access to your Homekit devices, which is not always the thing you want to do. if your neighbors are bought into the Apple ecosystem, then giving them access to your Homekit devices might be fine. If, however, they are android users, which my neighbors are, then this isn’t an option and email is the best route to go. So, the Fibaro not having email option is a big miss for me.
After a lot of firmware updates, this product has gotten more reliable over time, so I've up my rating on the product.
Temperature indicator is a nice plus but I doubt I will use it as a trigger.
